mod_gfx is a configurable Apache module that uses libgd to perform image operations on the fly. Some of the supported image operations are: resize, resample, watermark, and crop. A couple of its special features are origin selection via URI regex and round-robin over a list of hosts.
Minnow is a concurrent programming language with a Ruby-like syntax. It compiles to an executable and uses a companion library to allow fully-rebalanced microthreads. Minnow gains a lot of strength from its actor model, which uses message passing, as opposed to threads and locking, as its concurrency model. Taking a cue from Erlang, actor creation and message passing is extremely lightweight (often on the order of a few nanoseconds). The language has a built-in foreign function interface that allows developers to leverage existing C-based libraries in a simple SWIG-like manner. Minnow's object model is based on "melding" features together to form objects.
Usenet Downloader can be used to retrieve newsgroup articles from NNTP servers. There is a generic NNTP class that can retrieve listings of groups, listing of group articles, and the article headers and bodies. There are other classes that can retrieve listing of groups from several different sites and insert the listings into a MySQL database table. Other classes can retrieve groups stored in the database and retrieve articles of those groups from the NNTP servers.
Musca is a simple window manager for X allowing both tiling and stacking modes. It is similar to ratpoison but more friendly to the mouse and using a simpler keyboard navigation. There are no built in status bars, panels, or window decorations save for thin window borders to indicate focus. Window navigation can be mouse click to focus or entirely keyboard driven. Window tiling is manual but simple, and there are no restrictions on how you divide up the screen. It uses dwm's dmenu utility for launching apps and running various built in commands not mapped to hot keys.
